Always a great meal and friendly staff. We were part of a big group and I didn’t see a notebook once. Impressive work. Thanks for a great night

We were a big sport team. Booked by Facebook, I had a very quick and great response. Food was delicious and big portions. Definitely coming back if we have another event in Invercargill.

A bit of a muck up with our booking and so we had a lot of people in a very small space but food was good

We had dinner here recently and could not fault it. The restaurant was very busy but this did not affect the table service or food quality. We were really looking forward to our Blue Cod and chips and these didn’t disappoint. Excellent fresh fish, crispy...batter and great chips all cooked perfectly. Top marks to our waiter and the rest of the team.More

Came here with husband and two children for dinner. Husband had blue cod, I had drunken steak and 13 year old had the chicken burger and 10 year old the fish kids meal. All meals were delicious, came out quickly and my steak was rare...and cooked to perfection. Good service, nicely seated next to fireplace. Only discomfort was a cold breeze coming through legs from the back area. Apart from that brilliant experience.More

Meals were nice and tasty, service was friendly and prompt. Can’t complain about the menu or food but overall it was rather pricy for standard pub food. Go there if you want a meal you know what to expect from other one you can do...better elsewhere.More
